Description of this Book

In the spring of 2015 Paula Green walked Queen Charlotte Track, her poet's eye taking in the beauty of her surroundings and the history of the land. Early on the final day she tripped and was badly injured, but had to walk out for 10 hours on her broken foot - a journey made more dramatic by the fine weather breaking into a storm. To get through, and alleviate the pain, she composed poems in her head. The resulting poems are urgent, energetic, obsessive and compelling. Full of pain and joy, they take us on a journey though wild beauty, mind and memory, and a storm of words.
